How I keep myself from judging others:
(of course I am not perfect and make mistake but these tips have helped me incredibly!)
Judge not, that ye be not judged.
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
-We are told that when we are judging others we are setting the bar for how we will be judged. Sort of makes you rethink all those judgmental thoughts you had right?
-When I catch myself being judgmental I always repeat this phrase to myself, “don’t judge what you don’t FULLY understand.” (which by the way you will never fully understand what that person is going through, only Christ so leave the judgement to Him)
-Remember that we all have situations that we go “I hope they aren’t judging me because they don’t know the full story.”
-Every time you find yourself judging someone replace the thought with 3 positive things about that person and pretty soon you’ll find that you aren’t so judgmental.
happy labor day!
